Topics/Call fo Papers

Most employers with less than 500 lives will need to implement the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) on April 2, 2020. The DOL recently awarded an employee from a manufacturing company $4,352 for failure to comply with providing leave under FFCRA and failure to provide the required FFCRA notice. This webinar focuses on the Emergency Family Medical Expansion Act and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act requires employers to provide paid sick leave to employees affected by the Coronavirus.
An in-depth view of what the law will require from an employer with less than 500 employees, including identifying those areas that will need more guidance. Once completed, the employer or HR professional should be able to:
Develop an implementation Plan and Communicate Plan for employees
Understand who is eligible for the new benefit
Understand how to calculate payment of the new benefit
Able to answer questions from employees on the new benefit
Template to minimize risk of costly judgements and/or lawsuits
Employers with less than 500 employees must not only implement this new paid sick leave benefit but ensure they remain in compliance. Failure to provide the required notice, provide leave for qualified events or not documenting properly to receive the tax credit can be costly to an employer’s bottom line. Employers who have less than 50 employees should attend because prior to this, most of these employers were exempt from FMLA and may be unfamiliar with how to manage this type of benefit.
